Mayor London Breed and city transit officials gathered Friday to welcome the historic streetcars of the Muni F-line back to Market Street and The Embarcadero on Friday.

The occasion also marked the return of underground Muni Metro service on the N-Judah and K/T-Ingleside lines

Starting Saturday, Muni’s F Market and Wharves route from Fisherman’s Wharf to Market and Castro streets will return to service with historic streetcars.

The N Judah rail service will resume its full route between Ocean Beach and 4th and King streets to connect with the Caltrain station, and the T Third will be extended to West Portal and then continue on, running as the K Ingleside to Balboa Park Station.

Since crews were able to work on system improvements during the pandemic, Muni officials announced Monday that new Wi-Fi service will also be available now at stations and in tunnels.

Muni officials also announced a temporary new combined bus route called the 36/52 Special to serve the Forest Hill, Miraloma and Sunnyside neighborhoods. It will run in a loop between Forest Hill Station and Glen Park Station.
